Known just as “the adobe,” this structure on the former Kiel Ranch in North Las Vegas is considered the second oldest building in the region.

The state Board of Finance approved the sale of $1 million in bonds to preserve historic buildings in Nevada, with a small share going to Clark County.

The state Commission on Cultural Affairs has approved $98,000 for the city of Las Vegas for restoration of the adobe building at the Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs.

The structure was constructed in 1910 and is among the oldest buildings in Southern Nevada. There is a fence around it now to stop the public from entering. Restoration of the building will make it more accessible to visitors.

The city had asked for $199,382 for the project,

The city of North Las Vegas will receive $57,000 for restoration of the adobe building at Kiel Ranch. It sought $280,000.

The exterior of the Mesquite High School gym is ticketed to receive $40,000 for the second phase of a restoration project. The school had sought $50,000.

There were 15 requests to the commission asking for a combined $2.1 million, but the commission was limited to allocating $1 million.

The commission approved $180,000 to the Nevada Indian Commission and $100,000 each to the White Pine Historical Railroad Foundation and the Thunderbird Lodge Preservation Society at Lake Tahoe.

The board also approved sale of $55 million in bonds to finance repairs and rehabilitations of state structures such as prisons, museums and mental health facilities.

The bonds will be sold April 2 by the state Treasurer’s Office.
